The proposal highlights the importance of agriculture as a contrived weave created by man. The project tries to run away from interventions not respecting the local agricultural system as an intelligent system, understanding the streets as ancient evacuation circuits and the parcels as old breeding grounds.

Simrishamn has historically lived off the sea but turning its back to it. Our proposal aims to restore this relationship with the sea through a seafront promenade understood as a space for sports and leisure activities that breathe life into the city along the coast. The urban fabric projected for Simirishamn is designed according to the ancient agricultural structure that sketched the landscape of Österlen. It's a weave that intends to homogenize the growth of the new plan with the old town, but matching with a more contemporary city.

The proposed housing is done in a structure of closed blocks that are drilled to allow some pedestrian routes and that fosters the city-sea permeability. Sea views for all houses is favored by placing them perpendicular to the coastline. Inside the blocks we raise the floor to a +3.00m level, solving the parking problem and creating an elevated Community space with sea views. We propose a system of pieces that can come together according to the program in response to the different variants that the proposal can accept.
